Maybe this is the point to throw Transifex[1] into the discussion.
AFAIK it's a web-based translation platform which enables users with
less technical experience to easily translate software. Transifex can
commit changes to .po files back into GIT and so makes it even more

Xfce uses it since some time successfully now.

It would probably require some initial efforts but I could imagine it's
worth in the long-term by making the whole translation process faster,
easier and maybe even more continous.
